    Really?? The version I heard had something to do with limiting the embarrassment factor

    Ah! I see the problem now, going back to collect Maverick because they wouldn't answer their radio, then racing back to show them where the pearlies were biting and then the hormones kicked in and the race was on at WOT, I think we must have burned at least 12.5 kms worth of fuel on that jaunt. 😂😂😂

    Rob, this is what you need,esepically the last item.

    Changes made from version 3.60 to 3.70:
    Updated the Magnetic Variance calucation with new projected values.
    Increased the total fuel capacity allowed to 25,000 US gallons.
    Increased precision when calculating the total fuel remaining.

    You're probably right Sam.
    Plus Maverick had no chance of keeping up with those awesome Suzi's

    Neither the GMI10 or Suzuki interface can be calibrated... only a Lowrance system can be calibrated but that stays with the lowrance unit

    Hahahhahahaa
    That's why I rang you as I knew it would make you laugh.
    I especially sent you the pic cause I thought you would've put a post up, but after 24hrs of anticipation I couldn't wait, so did it myself
    Mate you were welcome to jump on Moejoes to look for yourself but hey like I said if you would've struggled to do a high kick higher than my knee cap, how the hell would you have lifted your legs over my gunnel
    Yamahardness?? I thought you left an oil slick at the ramp.
    My Suzi's are just fine, all I need is a larger fuel tank.
    Why would I need a dipstick when I have you buddy

    Thanks Garry,
    Really?
    Surely Garmin can write a percentage factor into their software.
    How am I supposed to know if I'll make it home or not
    Looks like I need to make my tank smaller Lol

    I suggested that a 10% allowance be included, that is, if it is a 450 litre tank then set the full tank as 400 litres. Yammie gauges do this automatically, but then again unless a flow meter is installed it is all guess work. Previous trip on my boat I had used 445 litres out of 460 litres, leaving 15 litres in the tank. Close call considering the distances we were covering.

    I have a 200 litre tank plus on this trip carried an extra 160 litres in jerries with Robs assistance. Seeing there was 15 litres left I decided to drain the tank to clear it of old fuel, water, crud etc.

    To my surprise 55 litres came out, bloody surprised as could have upped the revs and not hold Mojoes back across Hervey Bay.

    It gets more interesting, went to refill the tank and it would only take 192 litres yet previously when I'd drained the tank a few years back it had taken 200 litres. Does this mean the bottom of the tank is full of solid crud. I don't know now what to think, but I'm starting to think I might invest in a flow meter.
